DonorDirect Partners with 360MatchPro by Double the Donation to Power Matching Gifts within StudioEnterprise

Atlanta, GA (January 13, 2020) — DonorDirect is pleased to announce a new integration that combines the powerful matching gift automation of 360MatchPro by Double the Donation with the DonorDirect StudioEnterprise system.

The integration ensures that all match-eligible donations stored in StudioEnterprise are identified and the corresponding matches are submitted to their employer.

“DonorDirect is committed to maximizing our ministries giving opportunities” said Rick Lewis, Director of Sales for DonorDirect. “The integration with 360MatchPro tackles one of the most overlooked giving avenues, and does it automatically. We’re proud to offer this solution to our ministries.”

$4-7 billion in matching gift revenue is left unclaimed each year. This revenue is left on the table because donors are largely unaware of the corporate matching gift programs they’re eligible for. 360MatchPro identifies these opportunities that donors aren’t aware of, then actively follows up with donors to deliver their forms, guidelines, and instructions.

“The 360MatchPro platform automates the processes that are essential to boosting revenue from matching gifts,” said Adam Weinger, President of Double the Donation. “Combining matching gift automation with the wealth of data in StudioEnterprise means that no matching gift opportunity will go undiscovered.”

The 360MatchPro integration with StudioEnterprise is customizable to each nonprofit’s unique needs and StudioEnterprise configuration.

Explore these professional tips for engaging employees in corporate giving programs.

Engaging Employees in Corporate Giving Programs

In the 1800s, corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the United States started with giving. In the 1950s, the term “corporate social responsibility” was coined and stuck. In the ’90s, CSR started to become an expected function of large corporations. Giving was the inception of modern CSR and has been a constant companion throughout the history of corporate responsibility. As CSR has evolved, as society has changed and societal expectations have shifted, so too has the role of giving at corporations.

At Realized Worth, our priority is the employee citizenship experience, and giving is certainly a key part of that experience. But we find that engaging employees in giving is often approached only by looking at the mechanisms for engagement, and not necessarily the “why” behind those mechanisms. Without understanding the global social implications that affect giving programs, companies can’t fully understand which levers to pull to effectively engage employees in giving – or whether those levers are really working.

Let’s look first at some of the mechanisms being used to engage employees, followed by a deep dive into what drives employee behavior around these mechanisms.

There are several key components to consider when engaging employees in corporate giving programs.

Mechanisms to Engage Employees in Giving

In the past five to seven years, we’ve seen a huge shift in how companies support and encourage employee giving. Historically, giving programs tended to take the form of the annual (and still widely available) payroll deduction campaigns. Some companies still offer this as the primary way for employees to give to their communities and the causes they care about.

In terms of CSR programming, companies who are at a lower level of program maturity tend to have less diverse program offerings for employee giving. Companies with a higher level of maturity in CSR programming offer payroll giving alongside a range of options for employees, including offerings like:

  • Matching gifts
  • Dollars for Doers
  • International giving
  • Disaster relief campaigns

While payroll deduction programs are a great place to start, offering employees a variety of options to give and flexibility as to how they give to their communities is more likely to increase engagement in social responsibility. America’s Charities found that employees are five times more likely to participate in workplace giving when they have the opportunity to choose not only which charity they donate to, but also in what capacity.

Offerings like matching gifts, opportunities to give internationally, to volunteer and receive funds for donation, and the opportunity to support during intense times of need due to disaster are all useful incentives.

You can find some examples of unique employee giving programs here.

Engaging employees in corporate giving programs means defining and communicating priority focus areas.

Putting Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

Along with diverse and unique employee giving program offerings, companies can galvanize employee focus and action by accurately defining and communicating priority focus areas and strategic programs. Priority focus areas define causes or issues companies prioritize for investment, whereas strategic programs are the “how” of that investment.

In its 2019 Giving in Numbers report, CECP defines a strategic program as “the signature program area for which companies measure outcomes and/or impacts of their grants and that takes up the most time, money and management resources.” (p. 14). The report also looks at whether companies are being consistent when it comes to investing in causes they report as part of their focus areas.

This is important data, as it comes back to credibility, trust, brand strength, and transparency. In short, it analyzes whether companies are putting money where they say they are. And this matters enormously to employees in terms of engaging with social investment programming.

“In 2018, 42% of companies reported that the program area with the highest allocation of total giving also corresponded to the program area associated with their strategic program and also matched to the program area associated with their top-priority focus area.” (CECP Giving in Numbers: 2019 Edition, p. 14).

If your company is looking to more deeply engage employees in giving, take a hard look at the following:

  • Does your company have priority focus areas?
  • Does your company have strategic programs to support these focus areas?
  • What do you hope to achieve with your strategic programs?
    • Broader participation? Participation of specific groups of employees?
    • Center it around an important date or holiday (e.g. MLK Day).
    • Recognition: How do we recognize employees who contribute?
  • If your company has both priority focus areas and strategic programs to support it, are you investing a higher proportion of your giving dollars into strategic programs that support your focus areas?
  • Are you communicating clearly and regularly to employees what your focus areas and strategic programs are? What are you doing to make giving easy for employees?
  • Are you measuring the outcomes and/or impacts of your strategic programs effectively, and telling that story internally and externally?

When engaging employees in corporate giving programs, make sure to fully define your company's approach.

Defining Your Approach to Corporate Giving

This brings us to the underlying questions that should be fueling your company’s approach to employee giving. If you have a priority focus area or a signature cause, if you have strategic programs to engage employees in giving – there are some additional questions you need to be asking:

  • Are you looking at what’s happening in society both globally and in the places where your employees live and work?
  • What are the gaps – what is the most overwhelming need or needs? Which of these needs align best with your business?
  • What are the risks of tackling this identified gap through your company’s cause focuses and strategic programs? Will your approach create controversy? Do you welcome controversy? Why do you welcome controversy? How will you deal with it?
  • What are the opportunities of addressing this identified gap? What do you hope to achieve? How will this support business objectives such as employee engagement and happiness, talent attraction and retention, business development, brand awareness and loyalty, sustainability?
  • What do your employees care about most? Are you asking them what they see as the most pressing social needs your business should be investing in? Do they feel like you truly care? How do you know? While you should not necessarily choose focus areas based on employee desires, you should be able to demonstrate that you’ve listened and that you care. We’ve seen some employee activism play out in 2019 that acts as a lesson learned when it comes to listening to your employees and their values – such as Wayfair and Amazon.

Take full responsibility in engaging employees in corporate giving programs.

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility.

These questions and this approach to designing high-impact employee giving programs that engage employees are some key starting points. We live in a globalized world where information is currency, where transparency and truth are constantly being questioned, and where corporations – and their employees – are being held accountable by a global audience.

This year, CECP looked at something they’ve identified as “Total Social Investment” or TSI, which represents the “S” in Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) (CECP Giving in Numbers: 2019 Edition, p.10). They found that companies where Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Human Rights were managed within the same department that manages overall contributions had higher median total giving than at companies where this was not the case.

The point here is perspective: CECP has started looking at TSI to determine what “good beyond giving” looks like for large companies. Giving will likely always be part of a company’s corporate social responsibility approach, but it can’t exist in a vacuum. The future of CSR is about integration – a holistic approach. And not just within the company, but without. This means paying attention to the most pressing societal needs and being bold enough to claim ethical responsibility for making the world a better place as much as one company can.

Check out these effective nonprofit fundraising ideas that don't involve selling.

Fundraising Ideas That Don’t Involve Selling

Every year, nonprofits, faith-based groups, and schools need new fundraising ideas. What’s more, it’s crucial to include fundraising ideas that don’t involve selling.

Let’s face it: donors and families don’t like to sell merchandise on your behalf. Yes, they’ll do it—if they have to—to support your cause, but they don’t like it. In fact, many families don’t like selling so much that they’d rather just donate by buying the merchandise themselves. However, then they’re stuck with items such as chocolates, foods, and useless items they don’t want and will likely throw away.

Discovering alternate fundraising ideas that don’t require selling merchandise is vital to your fundraising strategy. Now, let’s dive into 5 key fundraising ideas that don’t involve selling!

A shoe drive fundraiser is a great fundraising idea that doesn't involve selling.

1) The Top Fundraising Idea: Shoe Drive Fundraiser

The top fundraising idea that doesn’t involve selling is a shoe drive fundraiser! One of the top reasons why it’s the top non-selling fundraising idea is because your community doesn’t have to sell merchandise on your behalf. Plus, they don’t even have to contribute financially.

Also, it’s the most socially responsible fundraiser you can host! When you host a shoe drive fundraiser, all you do is collect gently worn, used and new shoes. In the process, your community will keep shoes from going into landfills, and in turn, you’ll save the environment. Talk about social responsibility!

Once the footwear gets picked up by a well-known shoe drive fundraising company, you receive a check. Simple, right? What happens to the shoes from there is fairly straightforward. They get sent to small business owners in developing countries in need of merchandise to sell so they can escape poverty.

A Grow-A-Beard event is an effective fundraiser idea that doesn't involve selling.

2) Grow-A-Beard Fundraiser

Sure, this grow-a-beard fundraising idea is catered to men, but women can still support them! November is known for the Movember movement, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t ask the men in your community to grow their mustaches and beards for your cause! If they feel connected with your organization, they won’t hesitate to join in.

Also, if your community has a veterans’ group or sports team, you can partner with them. To get started, all you have to do is ask your male supporters to grow their facial hair for a month. As part of the initiative, each participant agrees to help you raise funds. And this is where you can ask women, girls, and boys to join in on the fun!

Your fundraisers have to ask sponsors to support them (and your cause) as they grow their facial hair! Encourage participants to turn to their family and friends for monetary support. By the way, if you get a group of men who work for a business to participate, perhaps it’s something their corporation will also support.

A chef competition is a creative fundraiser that doesn't involve selling.

3) Chef Competition Fundraiser

Are you or people you know foodies? Well, an excellent and tasty fundraising idea is a chef competition! Think of it as your own Master Chef competition.

All you have to do is recruit amateur chefs (and even bakers!). Then, find a venue. Start by considering a school cafeteria or the hall of a church in your community. After securing a venue, invite and promote your chef competition and invite people to attend your event. This fundraising idea will be a lot of fun for your community, because people will actively participate and vote on which chef or team offered the best dishes.

In exchange for a charitable donation, everyone gets to participate, and the experience will be one that will be memorable for your community and your cause!

A film festival is another fundraiser that doesn't involve selling and will bring the community together.

4) Film Festival Fundraiser

Many people love movies, so a film festival is a great fundraising idea. Because of the digital age, almost everyone has a cell phone on them at all times. Due to technology and social media, people already constantly take pictures and shoot videos. So, take advantage of what people already do and ask them to do it for your cause.

Invite your supporters and other community members to enter their films into your amateur film festival. Select a date on your calendar when you can screen the movies. Also, think about different movie themes that might be of interest to your community. Depending on your community and your budget, screen the films at a local hall or auditorium, and charge attendees an admission fee.

Not only is this a great way to raise money, but it also brings the community together through common interests.

A karaoke fundraiser is an effective fundraising idea that doesn't involve selling merchandise.

5) Karaoke Fundraiser

Chances are, you have donors and supporters who love to sing. Plus, thanks to constantly-evolving technology, you no longer need heavy karaoke equipment. All you need is a good mic, an amplifier and a screen to stream lyrics.

Choose a date on your calendar for this engaging fundraising idea, and see if a local restaurant or bar will partner with you. In exchange for providing you with a venue, you need to effectively market the event and get as many people as possible to attend.

Then, the restaurant or bar will either allow you to charge an admission fee or provide you with 5 to 10 percent of the receipts for the evening. To secure even more donations, you can record the event and ask people to donate so that you can send them the MP3 music file.

 

Now you have five fundraising ideas to try that are fun, free, and doable! However, no fundraising event is really over until you send out thank you emails. Not only is it a great way to extend your thanks, but it also gives you a better chance of retaining first-time donors.

A good place to start is with an email list grouped by recurring or first-time donors. This way, you get to personalize the message for each group better. 

Sending a thank you email lets your donors know the value and impact of their contributions. When you build relationships with donors, you help them feel more inclined to continue supporting you, your cause, and other fundraisers you may have in the future.

Fundraise Up Transitions to 360MatchPro by Double the Donation as Exclusive Matching Gifts Provider

Atlanta, GA (October 23, 2019)Fundraise Up is proud to transition its matching gifts integration partnership from Amply to 360MatchPro by Double the Donation, the leading provider of matching gifts and volunteer grant software to nonprofits and educational institutions.

Combined, the two solutions ensure the highest conversion rates and highest return from every donation made. Fundraise Up donation forms are engineered to engage more donors and drive those donations to completion using AI technology and dynamic donor experiences, while 360MatchPro’s powerful matching gift identification and follow-up ensures that each donation has the highest impact possible.

Each year, $4-7 billion in matching gift revenue goes unclaimed. The gap between potential revenue and claimed revenue can be largely attributed to a gap in donor awareness. When donors don’t know that they’re eligible for matching gifts or how to go about getting their donations matched, billions of potential fundraising dollars never reach nonprofits.

360MatchPro ensures that every matching gift opportunity is identified and followed up on, without adding administrative burden to busy nonprofit teams.

“Partnering with Fundraise Up is a natural fit for 360MatchPro,” said Adam Weinger, President of Double the Donation. “The purpose of matching gift automation is to ensure that no matching gift opportunity goes unnoticed, and Fundraise Up giving forms makes sure that all donor touchpoints are accounted for.”

CharityEngine exclusively partners with 360MatchPro by Double the Donation matching gifts platform.

CharityEngine Exclusively Partners with 360MatchPro by Double the Donation Matching Gifts Platform

Atlanta, GA (September 26, 2019)CharityEngine is excited to help nonprofits take full advantage of their fundraising potential through a new exclusive partnership with Double the Donation. The 360MatchPro automation matching gift solution by Double the Donation automatically identifies donors who are eligible for employer matching gift programs, then follows up with them to drive matches to completion.

CharityEngine online fundraising can now be integrated with 360MatchPro in minutes. After implementation, nonprofits will instantly begin receiving highly detailed analytics about their donors’ employment, matching gift eligibility, and matching gift submission status.

“The value of this integration to our nonprofit clients are two-fold,” said Leigh Kessler, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for CharityEngine. “First, we’re able to drive increased revenue without donors increasing their donations through employer matching gift programs. But even more exciting is that our nonprofit clients can add an entirely new dimension to their fundraising strategy via insights into where their donors work.”

Nonprofits are currently leaving $4-7 billion in matching gifts on the table, largely because of a lack of donor awareness. The 360MatchPro integration with CharityEngine addresses this gap in donor knowledge of matching gift programs by delivering next steps directly to match-eligible donors on the confirmation page and in follow-up emails.

CharityEngine exclusively partners with 360MatchPro by Double the Donation matching gifts platform.

Specifically, donors receive their next steps at the time of their donation, while they are most actively engaged in supporting their chosen cause and organization. At the time of checkout, donors are presented with the opportunity to search for their employer’s matching gift program details. The name of their company is saved, and they are presented with all the instructions and links they need to get their gift matched.

The integration connects Ellucian CRM Advance with 360MatchPro by Double the Donation, the industry-leading matching gift automation tool for nonprofits and educational institutions.

“Time-saving automation is the key to the value of this joint solution,” said Adam Weinger, President of Double the Donation. “360MatchPro shoulders the burden of research, outreach, and reporting that our clients were doing manually. That leaves time for advanced reporting and targeting manual communications to top matching gift opportunities.”
